Hi again everyone,
My singles match was a little bit rough today - I lost 1 and 3. Sofia played a really good match. I can see how she won this tournament before. She's a really good player. I tried everything I could but I wasn't playing my best tennis today. She played well, so that's how I ended up losing. I've been playing a lot of matches lately but that's not an excuse for me - I actually play better when I play a lot, I like playing a lot. I just have to keep working hard now.
One good thing today is I ended up doing well in the doubles - Shenay and I won pretty easily and are in the semifinals now, so that'll be good. Shenay's great. I really like her. We get along really well. I've known her for a while - we were in Fed Cup together... We've played doubles together before and have actually had some good wins. We're pretty opposite and our games are really the complete opposite, but we get along really well. It's funny.
I'm gonna go out to dinner tonight, to Houston's - I love that place here! Then I'm just gonna relax. I don't play until late tomorrow, so I can sleep in again too...
Now for some of your questions... thank you for sending them in!
Who is your favorite men's player?
Roger Federer. I've just always liked his game. The way he plays, his attitude on the court... not just because he's the best, but how he carries himself.
What are your upcoming tournaments?
Acapulco, Monterrey, then Indian Wells and Miami. So, a bunch of them!
Are you superstitious?
Yes, I am! I eat raisins on the court whenever I play. I also always do the same thing at every changeover, drinking water and Gatorade... I always do the same thing before a match too... but they're more like rituals, not superstitions. Liezel knows about my raisins. This is so funny that she wrote in. She just did a blog not long ago, and at Fed Cup we all had to do one... I hear players rarely write in to blogs, but of course Liezel had to! I'm going to text her.
